Coming to America!!!!!

I recently attended the trunk show of a very talented designer from Ivory Coast Loza Maleombho. She was showcasing her new Spring 2012 designs and I must say I was very impressed. Loved how she took different
 African prints and Incorporated it into modern designs... There is such richness in the African culture and we aree seeing more and more how this is being explored more in fashion , we have seen it on worldwide runways and designers such as Burberry, L.A.M.B, Donna Karen, Tory Burch and many more.... SO its very refreshing to see someone from that actual background , explore their roots and bring it front and center and add a modern, edgy and unique twist to it...

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
